Settled better in a first-time hood when winning easily on soft ground last month, but was found out by an 11lb rise three weeks ago, having been easy to back; today's longer trip isn't certain to suit on pedigree and she'll need to be amenable early.

Seven starts on turf at up to an extended 1m2f, showing best form when placed at Haydock and Chester; has handled heavy ground the last twice without improving for it (probably not helped by racing along up the far rail on former occasion); could prove well suited by AW (dam won here and sire's progeny have a higher strike-rate on AW than turf) and the longer trip another possible source of improvement; considered.

Most wins have come on the AW and he's 11lb higher than when last successful on grass; best turf efforts have come at undulating Chepstow and there's nothing to suggest he wants either this ground or the stamina test he's likely to face on it.

Thrown in if judged on his performances in two major 1m4f handicaps on soft in summer 2020 but he did not fire last season, mostly also on soft (unraced on heavy) and that includes when blinkers were given a go in this race; not seen since, so a great deal has to be taken on trust, but he had an excellent record earlier in career after lengthy breaks.
